The ARCUS Arctic Research Seminar Series brings leading Arctic researchers to Washington, D.C. to share the latest findings and what they mean for decision-making. These seminars will be of interest to federal agency officials, congressional staff, non-governmental organizations, associations, and the public.

This seminar, titled Examining the Implications of China’s Arctic Policy White Paper, will explore China's Arctic strategy and policy goals through the lens of a new white paper released by the State Council Information Office of China in January.

Dr. Hong is Executive Director and Senior Fellow of Institute for China–America Studies. Dr. Hong holds a PhD of interdisciplinary study of international law and international relations from the University of Alberta, Canada and held a Postdoctoral Fellowship in the University’s China Institute. She was International Tribunal for the Law of the Sea (ITLOS)-Nippon Fellow for International Dispute Settlement (2008-2009) and Visiting Fellow at the Center of Oceans Law and Policy, University of Virginia (2009) and at the Max Planck Institute for Comparative Public Law and International Law (2007). Dr. Hong is concurrently a research fellow with the National Institute for South China Sea Studies, China, and China Institute, University of Alberta, Canada. Her research takes an interdisciplinary approach to examining international relations and international law, with focus on International Relations and Comparative Politics in general; ocean governance in East Asia and the Arctic; law of the sea; international security, particularly non-traditional security; and international dispute settlement and conflict resolution.

This event is a brown-bag lunch that will be held in the ARCUS D.C. office (1201 New York Avenue, NW Washington D.C. Fourth Floor). Cookies and beverages will be provided.
